    Hang in there- the company is awesome to work for!
    I found the people interviewing me were very personable and down to earth. They were attentive to time spent shuffling me between dept. heads and managers during the interview process. I felt the interview process was pleasant and left feeling good about the company. The managers seem to hold personal job related experiences equal to, or above education background.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at AbbVie.

    Interview

    I was contacted by HR about 1.5 months after submitting my application. They scheduled an interview with the direct manager of the position. There was no first interview with HR or a phone interview first. The interview lasted about 1.5 hours and was with the department manager and an HR person from an outside company. I was told I'd hear back in a couple weeks, but didn't hear anything until 3 weeks later, even after emailing HR to check in at the 2 week mark. I received a form email that said they had chosen another candidate for the position.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me to walk them through my resume and mostly asked questions about my experience, especially working in a team, managing projects, my general career goals, why I was interested in the company. There were no surprises, it was very straightforward and I pretty much was asked every question I had prepared for before the interview.   Answer Question
